Finally been working on the brakes that went out late last summer. As the wagon proportioning valve was bad and is unobtainaium, I am installing a ‘89 MC with built in valve, but this required the later distribution block and some custom lines.
Since I was doing that I decided new hoses and rear wheel cylinders weren’t a bad idea (front calipers are new last year). Of the 7 hard lines on the car, I’m replacing 5 new, and 1 with a line off the ‘89 donor car. I am once again reminded why I hate 80s ford, as the combination of metric & ASE fittings, and pointlessly weird fittings is making this far harder than it needs to be.
The rear brake hose is held onto the diff with a T40 torx. And the two lines both going in a 3/16", but one is a 3/8" fitting and the other is a 1/4" fitting, which makes replacing the lines needlessly complicated.
